Everything about the evening was perfect; the food is beautiful in both taste and presentation, with multiple additional elements that make the experience special....from the initial plate of very fine nibbles, palette cleansers between courses, through to the huge box of petite four presented at the end of the meal. The service is definitely among the best I have experienced... More

From our arrival to our departure our evening was amazing. The staff were first class, professional and attentive. They were fully versed on the menu (there's nothing worse than when someone says "I don't know, I'll ask"). The food itself was delicious. On presentation, it was picture perfect. Each course and its elements was fully described by our waitress, Sonia.... More

This restaurant is exceptional from the minute we arrived, the staff greeted us, we were brought amuse bouche, a wine list covering every possible option, palet cleansers between courses, exceptional bread, and beautiful presented courses. We had the 4 course meal, the staff were so attentive, what a delightful experience, many British top restaurants could learn a lot from this... More

Rust en Vrede strives for excellence and almost delivered, We had the six courses and wine pairings, so I guess we got a good overview. The location is very nice, but the views are beaten by lots of others. The staff are very well trained and are pitched at just the right level. The wine pairings were very good, and... More

I booked a table for 8 people 6-months in advance to celebrate my 50th birthday. Early booking is definitely recommended as there are not many tables. I've eaten here a couple of times before, so expectations were already high. We took the Estate Experience Menu. This is basically a surprise menu. I won't spoil the surprises by detailing all of...

I have great memories of our night zag Rust en Vrede. We chose the six course menu with wine paring. Every course was great except the steak main course. The portion was microscopic; reallly no larger than a postage stamp. Nor was it great to eat. The wine pairing was superb. The place was littered with wait staff which obviously... More

We always enjoy eating the wine makers lunch at this wonderful farm, which is a choice of either sirloin or salmon. Both are scrumptious and their wines delicious. Their attentive staff make the experience even more enjoyable. A worthwhile experience in their beautiful setting.

This was hands down one of the best dinners I have ever had, and I'm a foodie living in NYC! Definitely Michelin star quality, there is attention to every small detail. We went with a group of 6, when we arrived the Maitre D' greeted us outside and led us to have a drink overlooking the gorgeous gardens with canapes.... More

Highly recommend visiting this winery - we had the steak for lunch (just two options - salmon or steak) and it was DELICIOUS. No wonder they don't need to choose any other food items... it's good with just the two. We also did the wine tasting and ended up leaving with 2 bottles. We would have bought more if we... More
